the transfer will not find my user account

My XP workstation has my profile with a dot in the name such as "user.systemname".

Easy transfer will not find this user account.  I was trying to rename the profile, but the system won't let me not renaming the directory that I do not have enough permissions or something is in use.

How can I get an easy transfer to recognize a profile with a dot in the name?

Like Windows 7...

Create a new user account and transfer your files and settings to the new account.

See: http://fredcoulson.com/blog/fred/index.php/2007/08/15/renaming-your-windows-xp-user-account/

Note: The easy transfer will not migrate type .dat and .tmp files

If that were the case, might as well the user simply copy the content of the personal folder under C:\Documents & Settings of an external hard drive.

Question is the part of a domain user account? If so, that may be why he won't let you rename (without permission).

If you are, I recommend the UN machine in the domain join then rename the account.

  • My laptop sees my Xbox 360, but the 360 will not connect to the top of the Tower

    I have a crossover ethernet cable

    I tried everything, but the 360 will not find the network,

    It saying that he "cannot obtain an IP address form the router or modem.

    Your router or modem can be automatically assigns an ip address, you can try a static IP address instead


    DHCP Server IP address form


    Help please



    Hey tons-of-pleasure-101.

    You can set a static IP address on the Xbox 360 by going to network settings and then manually enter an IP address.
     
    (1) type cmd in the start search field.

    (2) type ipconfig/all in this window, and then press the Enter key. This will display a lot of information.

    3) take down of the IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, and name servers. Be sure to note which is which.

    (4) type exit in this window, and then press the Enter key to close.

    (5) once more, open the start menu. This time, click on Control Panel.

    6) click view the status of network and tasks.

    (7) select the settings of map on the left side of your screen.

    (8) make a right click on your network adapter and choose Properties to open the properties of this internet connection window.

    9) click Protocol Internet Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), and then the properties button.

    Until you make changes, write down the settings you see on this page. If something is wrong you can always change the settings back to what they were! You should see a point in the obtain an IP address automatically box.

    (10) choose an IP address and type in the IP address box. The ip address that you choose should be very similar to the ip address of the router. Only the last number of the ip address must be different.

    (11) put the previously found in section mask subnet mask subnet. The default gateway should enter in the default gateway box. Enter the dns servers we prevoiusly found in the two zones on the DNS server. Completely out of this menu, click OK.

    That's all you should be done.

    Once done, you must assign a static ip address for your xbox as well.
    When you're done, between the two, the only parameter that must be different is the actual IP address. The gateway and subnet mask must be the same on your XBOX and PC LAN connection.

    Refer to this:

    Can not get an IP address from your router or modem
    http://support.Xbox.com/support/en/us/NXE/xboxlive/troubleshooting/NetworkHelp_dynip.aspx

    This should be it.

  • Rootkit causes my pc to not load my user account.

    One day I tried to log on my user account, but it said something like windows cannot load the file, it may have been corrupted or something like that. Then he told me take up a temporary account and any changes made will not be saved when that I disconnect. I did a search on the computer with AVG 8 (free) but came back with nothing. So I did a rootkit scan and gave me 2 files. These are the files that he gave me:
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\dla\tfsnifs.sys

    I believe that the two were the same files. No other user accounts have been injured, but all my files and documents are missing. I don't think they are gone, just.

    Your problem description describes a typical problem of 'corrupted profile '.  It is a quite common phenomenon.  Sometimes running "chkdsk/r" will fix this problem and should be your first attempt to solve the problem:

    "How to perform disk error in Windows XP check"
      <>http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/315265 >

    If this does not work, follow the instructions in one of the following two articles:

    "How to copy data from a corrupted to a new profile in Windows XP user profile"

    Personally, I doubt that a rootkit has something to do with it.
